    Canadian Surface Combatant RFQ

    And more bad news from Australia re. Hunter class: https://www.aspistrategist.org.au/hunter-class-frigates-wont-meet-the-rans-needs/ The Aussie's don't have a great record when it comes to recapitalizing their Navy. I can't think of a single ship in the past 30 years that wasn't either late...

    Arctic/Offshore Patrol Ship AOPS

    Thanks Underway. Great post! I don't suppose the issue of speed was discussed was it? I'd heard that the ship's designed open water speeds were said to have been conservative, but search as I might, have have yet to see any information on how this class does "in real life".

    Justin Trudeau hints at boosting Canada’s military spending

    The story circulating around the office is the Minister was presented with a number of options to get to 2%, but most of them represented new capabilities.

    Justin Trudeau hints at boosting Canada’s military spending

    CTV reporting $8Billion, but "it won’t be allocated all in one year". If correct, disappointing, to say the least, and tone deaf on the part of the Liberals. https://www.ctvnews.ca/politics/federal-budget-to-include-10b-housing-plan-8b-for-defence-1.5850968

    Justin Trudeau hints at boosting Canada’s military spending

    I guess we will have to wait until tomorrow, but a "$12 bn defense top-up" can mean a lot of things. Is that an extra $12 bn a year, or an extra $12 bn out until 2027?

    Arctic/Offshore Patrol Ship AOPS

    I think it's the same video I posted in 2852, but I haven't watched them back to back. This was tweeted out by Irving related to the ice trials for future HMCS Margaret Brooke. Apparently breaking ice as thick as 2 meters at points.

    Canadian Surface Combatant RFQ

    Looks like DND has upgraded the CSC Fact Sheet - now showing 24 MK 41 VLS. Drawing has the new main mast, so this appears to be very recent. http://www.navy-marine.forces.gc.ca/assets/NAVY_Internet/docs/en/fleet/csc-fact-sheet-eng.pdf
